As with all Gransfors products, the Gransfors Bruk Outdoor Axe is of excellent quality; hand-forged and made using traditional Swedish methods. Each axe head comes individually stamped with the smith's initials, while the hickory handle is boiled in linseed oil and rolled in bees wax for a smooth water repellant finish.
The Outdoor Axe is a small, lightweight hatchet sized axe designed to have numerous uses: limbing trees, chopping and splitting firewood, and also as a heavy knife for woodcarving or simply cutting food. Despite its small stature, the Outdoor Axe can even be used for felling trees when kneeling, thanks to its relatively long handle and heavy head.
The Gransfors Outdoor Axe was developed with the help of Swedish survival expert Lars Fält. As well as establishing the Swedish Defence Survival School, Lars has written 8 books on survival and outdoor skills over the years.
The axe has a 2 ½” face and a 14.75” hickory handle and the head weighs 1 lb. It features a shoulder collar, and comes with a grain leather sheath.
